| This school is HORRIBLE!!! The people here are rich stuck up ass wholes! If you are not apart of a sports team you will have no social life. This school is a complete JOKE! There is no fun to be had here! If you play music or have your tv on people will complain to your RA! If you are a freshmen & live in wingate (like me) don't leave your windows open at night because the tiles in your ceiling will blow up. There is also a leak over my bed that I can't get maintenance to come fix. The school has absolutely NO pride or spirt. The sport players get no support from the school, everyone expects them to do bad! The food is gross! I eat salad & yogurt everyday for breakfast and lunch. The schools rules are very restricting so ALOT of times you have to get off campus to enjoy yourself which is hard if you have no car or money. Some RA's are very nosey and always stick their noses where they don't belong. If you try to have fun on weekends in your room RA's do rounds to make sure that doesn't happen. SOME teachers are horrible and simply give busy work. My high schools work was more challenging than the work here. I don't feel like after my four years here that I will be prepared to work in the criminal justice field! The bathrooms are gross. There is always mold on the ceiling and toilets ore often clogged. Laura Deavo is a BITCH from hell! & I swear that the new president of MIC is doing his hardest to make sure that our lives are living hells. I have not met anyone who actually likes & wants to stay at this school! The school is hard to transfer out of because all credits won't transfer. On campus parties are more like elementary school dances. Not to bring race into this but if your african american and are used to being around other African Americans then take my advice & stay far away This school is a waste of time and money. The only good thing about this school is the shuttle system and the career services. I hate this school and pray everyday that things will get better. If this school is your only choice I would suggest going to the army, going right to work , or going to community college. I had more freedom at home this school is a living nightmare and I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy !!!!!!!!!! STAY FAR AWAY!!! |

| Huge waste of time and money.|
After being told I was "all set to register for classes", the financial aid department put a hold on my account -- therefore not allowing me to register for classes (which I found out after I made my schedule). I was told that more than half of the incoming undergraduates also had their accounts on hold and were in the same situation as me. The financial aid department couldn't have been more uninterested in helping me. I finally got into classes after missing the first week. I was extremely disappointed after one of my professors was arrogant and rude to me in front of the class after introducing myself and explaining my situation. I withdrew from Mount Ida because I'm not paying $30k+ a year to be taught by unprofessionals.
Most of the students here are ratchet and ghetto. I didn't find any of them approachable. Mount Ida doesn't have that good of a reputation and it isn't a respectable college. Glad I jumped ship.

| This is the worst school in the entire country, it has got to be. I came here on scholarship and had normal expectations and I regret every dollar every minute wasted in this run down, pathetic excuseFor a college. I now attend a community college and I am so much happier. Lets start with the dorms. As a freshman I lived in wingate (2009) there was black mold all over the tiny bathroom which we had to cram our bodies into. Due to the small space and no adequate ventilation system the steam and mold caused the paint to tear and fall from the ceilings. I would be afraid to take showers. I had a chronic cough for months had chest x rays done and was put on an inhaler. If I had enough money I would sue the school. Education is the biggest joke ever. The professors are often underpaid, most did not speak Proper English in the science majors, and would cAncel class more times than not. Student life is non existent. The reputation this school has is called mount mattress. The girls call themselves idahoes. Stds are reported to be a huge issue with upperclassmen at more than 50-75 percent with chlamydia and herpes. The food is repulsive. The only thing I ate was salads. So many many many students including myself have gotten food poisoning from Carlson. Laura deveau is probably the worst human being I have had to meet, she is arrogant, unprofessional and she and her entire department is the reason why I was diagnosed with depression. They handled an issue I had with another student in such a way that allowed me to feel unsafe based on threats I received which campus police did nothing about. I hope the entire college staff and prospective students read this and think twice before wasting your money to go here. At best I would recommend COMMUTING to this school for their dental hygiene vet tech or funeral service program. (One of the best) other than that I strongly suggest and even plead with you to not go there. I don't think any human being deserves what I went through just because I wanted an opportunity at a good education and the chance to make my parents proud. |
